We have seen JJ Watt do some amazing athletic feats on the field. To put it bluntly – he’s a freak.

But off the field, the Houston Texans All-Pro defensive end is just as impressive.

Watt posted on Twitter (@JJWatt) a ridiculous video of him doing a stand-still jump onto a box 5 feet high. That means he had to get higher than the 60-inch tall box in order to land safely on it. So we’re talking 61, 62 inches straight up. No steps, no running start. Just a stand-still jump.

Check out the video and personally witness Watt’s legend grow.

We have seen Watt jump over things (and people) before.

How about that time he jumped over Jimmy Kimmel & Guillermo?
